For more than a year now I've had a pretty nasty case of tennis elbow. As a result, my grip has loosened quite a bit. I'm chopblocking with LPs close to the table. My current setup is Andro Fibercomp with Giant Dragon Talon. With my new grip it feels very slow and "not dangerous". I need something faster but light. I don't like thick balsa as I'm feeling that I'm lacking control. What would be a decent blade in the 75-80 g range, reasonably fast (all+, off-), preferably with kiri core? Please from your experience only!
